I'm playing along today with two challenges - Etsy Inspired Challenge #123 and a little challenge on Facebook for those of us not going to CHA (The Craft and Hobby Association trade show).
For Etsy Inspired: I headed over to Nanny's Room this week for my inspiration. You are going to LOVE these original artwork pieces and handmade items. Nanny's Room creations are made with watercolor and colored pencils, and they are miniature in size [2 1/2" x 3 1/2"]. You are going to love all these vibrant colors, I sure did - these are STUNNING! I am in love with the incredible colors in her artwork and pendants.
For the FAcebook Challenge (see my Facebook page for me info) Play 2 - this uses the colors of CHA - Candy Apple Red, Honey and Aqua.
I embossed on water color paper with a Papertrey Ink's stamp set (black ep) and then watercolored using my reinkers in Riding Hood Red, So Saffron and Pacific Point. I used Golden's GEL medium over the top of the watercolored piece - its a great product you can get it in gloss, semi or matte and it adds texture while sealing in your project. And what I really love about it - it dries! It really dries! Modge Podge always stays tacky here in Florida - I assume that there is just to much humidity.
Stamps: Friends Til the End (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Lemon Tart (PTI) CS, Basic Black CS and watercolor paper
Reinkers: Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Pacific Point & Bliss Blue (all SU)
Other: Images were stamped with Versamark and embossed in fine black embossing powder
